Primary School Cookies

One of the most enjoyable aspects of participating in blog hops
is that there is always something new to glean from others.
Learning is a way of life around here.
We're always up for trying new recipes.
Big K gave these a big thumbs up! 

This recipe was found via the Clever Chicks Blog Hop.
The original post can be found here.
The author stated that she used to enjoy these treats at school.  
What a wonderful memory.
Minor changes were made to accomodate our diet.

Primary School Cookies
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 T milk(we use soy or almond)
1 T vanilla 
1 egg
1 3/4 cups unbleached flour
1 t baking powder
1 t salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream together  butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Add flour and mix until a stiff dough is formed.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop tablespoon sized balls of mixture onto 
a greased or lined baking tray.
